Pretty Legnano Roma Olympiade (not mine) spotted in the wilds of Pasadena on the monthly vintage ride (1st Sunday every month).


Sorry about the weird lighting.

Merckx downtown

Bike messenger Merckx frame (Strada?) downtown Chicago. Looks pretty beat but probably a pretty nice frame... looks like my size as well

Thanks for posting!

A fine looking steed.

Lighting no problem.

What is wonky is that Benotto (or whatever it is!) wrap.

Boy does it look out of place.

Thanks very much for posting!

These modest model Motobecane (also Orly, Astra, Dynamax & Motoconfort) machines of the 1960's and early 1970's exhibit an interesting combination frame construction of lugged head paired with lugless seat and shell (CH thread).

What is missing on this one is the chrome winged M fork crown cap. Perhaps someone did not care for it and removed it when HS was repacked...

Seen during a walk at James River Park today, a nice orange Stumpjumper Sport from the pre-indexing era; it still has the Shimano Light Action thumbies on it but somebody geared it up with larger chainrings.

Spotted a parked Specialized Cross Roads yesterday; not sure of the vintage, likely early/mid '90s, but cromo all the way, in very good condition, and just exactly my size. Husbeast had to pull me away.

Walked by this Vintage inspired Riv Homer Hilsen the other day at my local Coffee shop, always liked those but I can get a whole fleet of C&V for the cost of the frame I did test ride its little brother the Sam Hilborne once and it put a big grin on my face so I 'm sure the Hilsen would not disappoint.

Saw a really nice Raleigh Super Course today parked outside a store. Looked like it had a lot of miles on it, but had been well cared for. Great to see. Apologies that I donít have a picture.

No pic here either, I was lucky to catch back up with the guy after he passed me, 80's Marinoni, medium light blue, dark livery, fastback seatstays at the top. Very cool.

Cultural diversity on a group ride. I was on my '78 Super Course, but couldn't fit it in the picture.

Vintage titanium Serotta, hybrid e-bike, folding travel bike, modern carbon.
